    Description

    Alex Raymond Rip Kirby Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-26-49 (King Features Syndicate, 1949). Possibly the most successful attempt to bring a private eye to the comics page, Rip Kirby was written and drawn by comics legend, Alex Raymond. None of Kirby's villains are as charming as the evil temptress Pagan Lee, who started out in the strip as a mere moll, but managed to claw, scratch, and kill her way up the ranks to the position of full-blown mobster. In this strip, dated 5-26-49, Pagan wraps Rip into yet another of her schemes. The ink over graphite on Bristol board image area measures 18.5" x 5.5". Edge toning and overall paper aging; otherwise, in Excellent condition.
